Booker’s® Bourbon Roundtable selects fourth batch in 2015 limited-edition release collection

Booker’s® Bourbon, one of the few bourbons available uncut and unfiltered, announces the release of the fourth batch in its 2015 collection, Batch 2015-04, also referred to as the “Oven Buster Batch.” This latest expression was hand selected during an exclusive tasting by Fred Noe, 7th Generation Master Distiller, and the Booker’s® Bourbon Roundtable – a small collection of esteemed bourbon experts, enthusiasts and writers. The latest release of Booker’s® is a true testament to the full-bodied bourbon first created by the late Booker Noe, 6th Generation Master Distiller and Fred Noe’s father.

“I’ve always been fond of cooking with bourbon,” said Annis Wickham Noe, wife of Booker and mother of Fred. “Years ago, as I was preparing a pork roast, I mistakenly reached for a bottle of my husband’s namesake bourbon to pour over the roast. The oven sparked from the bourbon’s high proof and the door flew open – that’s how the Oven Buster nickname was born!”

“Oven Buster Batch” is the second batch this year that was selected by the Booker’s® Bourbon Roundtable, with the guidance of Noe. The Roundtable was also joined by special guest Fred Minnick, author of “Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for a Savvy Drinker,” who contributed his knowledge of whiskey to help the group choose a batch that properly honors Booker Noe’s whiskey preferences and pays homage to the bourbon’s full-body flavor profile.

The Roundtable panelists who helped select Batch 2015-04, “Oven Buster Batch,” included the following members:

Chuck Cowdery, Blogger and Author of “Bourbon, Strange: Surprising Stories of American Whiskey”
Geoff Kleinman, Founder and Managing Editor of
John McCarthy, Spirits Writer and Senior Managing Editor of Men’s Health Magazine
Jack Robertiello, Spirits Writer and Spirits Competition Judge
Tony Sachs, Spirits Writer and Blogger for Huffington Post

Noe, the Roundtable Panelists and Minnick selected Booker’s® “Oven Buster Batch” with the following characteristics:

Proof: 127
Age: 6 years, 5 months and 20 days
Nose: Vanilla with oak
Finish: Long, smooth, pleasant finish
Sipping Suggestions: With ice or cut with water

Uncut and unfiltered – like all Booker’s® Bourbon batches before it – “Oven Buster Batch” features the robust flavor and natural proof that Booker’s® Bourbon is known for and will be available nationwide beginning mid-August with a suggested retail price of $59.99 per 750 mL bottle.
